: Air Talk: The Caltech EditionDescription
: AirTalk is the longest-running daily talk show in Southern California, aired for the first time on April, 1985. Starting in 1988, the talk show hosted by Larry Mantle, was devoted to Caltech and Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the third Wednesday of every month and had the title "AirTalk: The Caltech Edition". The first broadcast of "AirTalk: The Caltech Edition" took to the airwaves on January 20, 1988. The program was aired from 6 to 7 PM on KPCC, the National Public Radio affiliate of Pasadena City College and for a few years (from 1989 to 1992) was also aired on TV channel KPAS. The show included interviews with Caltech and JPL faculty, staff, students, and alumni; as well as features such as Caltech Almanac (a detailed look at some of the many interesting people, places and discoveries in Caltech's history), Caltech Calendar (a listing of upcoming public events on campus), and Caltech in the News. Among the guests, many world-renowned scientists were interviewed: Nobel Prize and Crafoord Prize winners; former eminent Caltech and JPL administrators; and Caltech Trustees. Each of the interviewees shared with the California public their cutting-edge scientific research, their view on education and the history of Caltech. Source
